Ukraine (bbabo.net), - Washington called groundless rumors about negotiations in Moscow by the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States, William Burns, about possible territorial concessions to Ukraine in exchange for peace.
The American magazine Newsweek writes about this, referring to the statement of the deputy press secretary of the White House National Security Council, Sean Davitt.
He stressed that the information spread by a number of Western media about the alleged secret negotiations between Burns and Vladimir Putin in January 2023 "does not correspond to reality."
This information was denied by the CIA. According to Newsweek, an intelligence source later called the rumors "completely false."
Recall that earlier the Swiss publication Neue Zürcher Zeitung reported that the United States had developed a peace plan to resolve the armed conflict between Ukraine and Russia, which was presented to the parties in mid-January.
According to the publication Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ), this plan was presented to both sides by the head of the US Central Intelligence Agency, William Burns.
To this end, US President Joe Biden sent Burns to Kyiv and Moscow, where he voiced Washington's peace initiative. Its essence was to transfer about 20 percent of the territory of Ukraine to the Russian side in exchange for peace.
As bbabo.net reported, according to the publication, the parties to the conflict did not agree to such a deal, as a result of which Washington decided to supply Abrams tanks to Kyiv.
